Hooray! A whole month of daily drawings, of varying quality. Wish I’d picked a year where February didn’t have 29 days :/
Now, for someone who calls himself an animator, I should be doing several sketches - or even pages of sketches - every day, regardless of how many I upload. But I really did struggle with getting these done regularly; I could come out with all these excuses about kids and housework and cooking and all the other things I have to take care of as well as drawing, but I think the real problem I have is laziness!
Finally, My friends Chris and Helen are getting married today (actually, they probably are by now); I couldn’t attend the ceremony but I hope they had a great day!

Mike’s suggestion: “Kryten from Red Dwarf wearing a hat (try and imagine such a thing!)”
For you see, rather recently, Mike and I went to see an episode of the new series of Red Dwarf being filmed! And lo, in that episode Kryten did verily wear a hat.
Not a hat as shit as this mind you.

Bit late uploading this one! Had a busy day, between taking the baby for his injections, dealing with the grumpy consequences later, and Kei coming home with a cold!
Missus Patches suggested “any character from The Adventures of Tintin”, so I picked Captain Haddock, the only character I could vaguely stand.
(NB: changed the date on this post to 8/2/12, even though it’s gone midnight, just to keep the posts organised!)

Yet another mentile suggestion from Mike: “A woman wearing bras. Lots of bras.”
Also: colour? Well, turns out lots of other people have decided to do a drawing a day in February, by which I mean A FULLY FINISHED ILLUSTRATION. And it’s making me look fucking stupid. Also, the last pencil drawing I tried to scan came out all faint and crappy, so this is drawn in Photoshop. MAD WACOM SKILLZ YO.
Promise tomorrow’s drawing will be a suggestion from someone else!

I did decide that I’d be starting my month of daily sketches today (and announced it on deviantART), but I have another post to make first.
So here’s the thing: when I was doing the daily sketches last time, I was aiming for at least a year’s worth, but I wasn’t keeping count as I drew; it was only when it came to uploading them on the blog that I assigned them a number, and knew how many days along I was. When it came to February, I knew I’d done a year, but because I was behind in scanning them I didn’t know exactly where to stop... thus, I overshot the mark a little. Here are those other sketches!
The girl in the middle is meant to be Black Canary; I thought the drawing in general was ok but the face I couldn’t get right. I still hate it. The guy in the bottom right corner is a member of Special Judicial Squad, from the Judge Dredd comic (very hard to find reference for those guys...); the guy next to him is Green Arrow, one of the crappest superheroes ever conceived. Can you tell that I was struggling for ideas at this point? Oh, and you know how I’m fond of drawing rubbish visual puns, like Fighter Pilot and Cricket Bat? Well in this image there is a truck. Full of monsters. I even labelled it for you. I think the rest is self-explanatory!

That’s it! I’ve finally scanned and uploaded a year’s worth of daily drawings. I was surprised to realise that I stopped scanning/uploading them in January last year, and didn’t get around to finishing until NOW... in my mind, it was only a few weeks ago
So yeah, I’m gonna leave the daily drawing thing alone for a while; mainly because scanning them, resizing them, cropping them, adjusting the levels, and saving them with the appropriate file names, and then making each of them into a blog post and uploading them.... is a colossal pain in the arse. Also, I got a 3DS for my birthday and Resident Evil: Revelations yesterday, so.... screw you art!
